6:14 pm
clinical trials which target the therapy. one of the trials is looking at treatment. it's called affinity trial. it's extremely important and that's how we make progress. i think overthe years we have developed many different drugs for treatment of breast cancer. >> some people have concerns is it safe? >> absolutely. i think it's a valley concern, but certainly patients who are on clinical trials follow this closely. i think the concern is valid. like i said, that's how we make progress. that's how we develop it. >> also learn about different treatments. >> yes. so we have different types of breast cancer and with new agents coming on, we are looking

6:16 pm
of the year. take a look. 52 in the city. frederick at 48. you notice some blue off in the lefthandf your tv screen. that's where temperatures will struggle to get into the 30s. brisk and cool. going into tonight 4 around 11:00. we wake up top mostly cloudy sky and another day we struggle to get out of the 50s with the possibility of a spot shower. clear overhead toward the south. we've been watching spot ni showers near -- spotty showers near anne arundel county. this is our animation of the radar showing us the steadier showers have been north and west of the city. that will clues through the course of this evening but eventually we're going to see
6:17 pm
some moisture swing in. that's why we are anticipating those scattered showers to be with us through really most of the game. future trend showing us at 8:00 spot ni showers. there play be a lill and another recharge of showers after midnight. so i think we get the game in but spotty showers and a steadier shower as we head toward the predawn hours. clouds with us. spot shower and more clouds will be with us as we head into wednesday. temperatures starting to warm up. we'll get into warmer air from kansas city back toward the west. that will eventually come. 43 degrees in town. mostly cloudy. 57. that's hour two degree guarantee tomorrow and the possibility of a spot shower. partly cloudy skies and cool. here's your seven-day forecast. a warming trend. there's one more shot of chilly hair that comes into play for

6:20 pm
6:21 pm
6:22 pm
we are committed to giving you the information you need. as part of our commitment to democracy 2012 we're bringing you five-minute one on one interviews with the candidates. we have the libertarian candidate for maryland's 6th direct. >> i'm nicholas mueller, the libertarian candidate for congress in the 6th direct. the reason i'm running is to provide voters a real choice rather than the republicans and democrats who only disagree on where they want the government to interfere in your life. >> we're speaking with a $16 trillion debt. housing market that's shaky. where do you start to finding solutions. >> i think the right solution is to get the government out of the
6:23 pm
economy as much as possible. it's gotten too big. it spends too much money. what we really need to do is let the free markets solve a lot of these problems. as for the housing market, that's a harder issue. a lot of bad debt still needs to be clear before any real recovery is possible there. >> former secretary of state condoleezza rice recently called education the civil rights struggle of our day. do you agree with that assessment and how do you address it. >> i believe that education is a big problem, but the problem is in the that there's too little government in education but much too much. we need to allow the free market to provide things like voucher programs, charter schools and allow bad teachers to be fired and good teachers to be rewarded. >> what do we do with afghanistan? what's the end game?
6:24 pm
>> this has not been clear what the end game of the current administration are a last administration will be in the middle east but what we should really do is march the troops out as quickly has we marched them in. >> is the healthcare reform act the answer. mitt romney said he will refeel immediately. so what is your stance. >> the healthcare has a lot of good intenses but it's not going to accomplish those goals it. create as bigger government bureaucracy and it tries to reduce prices by initiating price controls and those things don't work. what we really need is to create free market solutions look allowing insurers to compete for your business rather than forcing everybody to buy insurance and restricting the types of insurance that those people can buy. >> how do you address the
6:25 pm
ongoing stalemate and generallal nastiness that exists in both houses. >> i think to a large extent the nastiness has been everblown by the media. stalemates are a good thing because it stops the government from making big drastic changes in people's lives unless there is an agreement about those changes. as for myself i find things aagree with on both sides of the aisle. republicans, aagree with lower -- agree withler taxes and simpler tax code. for the democrats, i think the government should be out of your social life. >> you've been listening to nick chloe last mueller. to see this interview and other canned interviews, log on to don't forget to vote tuesday
6:26 pm
november the 6th. >> all right. we'll have much more candidate interviews throughout the monthment tonight hi is down ated yard. >> and the best spot. i'm joce sterman. >> have a good evening. >> go o's.
